Growing up with a father who worked in structural engineering and taking an early interest in human anatomy, Dr. Thomas Klein knew at the age of 12 that he wanted to pursue a medical career.

His particular orthopedic interests include knee arthroscopy and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. He also enjoys seeing the positive results of using new arthroscopic techniques for shoulder surgery and performing total knee and hip replacements for arthritis patients who are not responding to more conservative treatment.

Dr. Klein is active in medical leadership roles and has served as Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics at Reston Hospital and as Quality Management Chairman of OrthoVirginia.

Patient Testimonials

“After I had exhausted alternative treatments and procedures for osteoarthritis pain from both hips for many year, Dr. Klein successfully performed a total right hip replacement in January 2018. I returned to work within six weeks and was feeling great! My other hip then needed the same attention so Dr. Klein completed the same procedure on my left side seven weeks ago and I’m now pain free!” – Cindy, hip replacements. Read more of Cindy’s story.

“Dr. Thomas Klein has been nothing short of remarkable, absolutely amazing! He is without a doubt an exceptionally skilled surgeon. He has completed two arthroscopic knee surgeries for me, both with outstanding results. He is always attentive, compassionate and has a great bedside manner. He knows how to put me at ease and genuinely listens to my issues/concerns while answering all my questions. His explanations are thorough, in addition to providing me examples of how the specific knee issues impact my various gym exercises. I have the greatest confidence in him and his professional opinion. I am so grateful to have him as a surgeon.” – Debbie B.
